On Saturday, October 9th, over 80 students and community members joined together in the fight against childhood malnutrition at Ithaca’s 1st Walk for Plumpy’nut hosted by Food for Thought. The walk raised over $1,500 and 100% of the proceeds will be used to feed critically malnourished children at Concern Worldwide’s feeding stations.
Food for Thought would like to thank everyone who planned, participated, volunteered, and donated to the Walk for Plumpy’nut for making it such a success. Food for Thought would also like to thank its sponsors including: Aztech DataSystems, The International Food Network, Patton Veterinary Hospital, EIBe Photography, Dr. Ragland Orthodontics, Gimme! Coffee, Lucienne’s Fine Foods, Moosewood Restaurant, Life’s So Sweet Chocolates, Sodexo Dining Services, and Loose Threads. Also, a very special thank you to WICB, Ithaca College’s student-run radio station, for turning the walk into a dance for Plumpy’nut!
Food for Thought is a club at Ithaca College that is dedicated to improving the lives of children around the world who are facing poverty, malnutrition, and lack of education.
